    Hey everyone, new Galaxy S4 owner here, coming from Windows Phone 8. I love my WP8 but I couldn't help but notice how amazing this S4 was, so I just had to get one! Loving it so far.

    I was hoping I could get some help with Dashclock.

    Is there anyway to have it always display like this?

    Or do you have to swipe down to display this information because of the swipe to unlock? I was hoping for a way to display calendar information right on the lock screen without having to scroll down on it.

    Also if I get a text message or a missed call, it always jumps to a new lockscreen window, and in order to see Dashclock I have to swipe to the left, which is kinda pointless.

    Could it just be that using Dashclock with the default launcher is a bit screwy? I'm on an AT&T S4 btw

    Thanks in advanced for any help / information!

    I have it on Cyanogenmod and that MOD comes with the option to make widgets full screen by default. That means that it is doable, but other than another ROM, I'm not sure what other options are out there. As for the default launcher, if you long press any lock screen, you should be able to move them around. The one furthest to the right prior to the camera should always be the default. Again, not 100% sure that works on TouchWiz.

    Yeah I think this is a limitation in Android 4.2 (other than using a MOD with some custom ROMs). I'm not sure why Google didn't have an option to maximize the lock screen widgets. It seems like they would be much more useful (especially DashClock). Also it would be nice if they allowed multiple widgets on each sliding panel.

    Thanks guys, it indeed feels like a limitation of the stock Rom, I did move it to the default lockscreen widget, even shows as the little house, but anytime something comes up, like a message or a missed call, a new lock screen widgets forces its way in front of dashclock :P

    Again really appreciate the help!
